Library with other font for LCD - exists any?

Hello,

is there any avalaible library for using other (bigger) font in LCD display? I've seen in videos somewhere on YT, that there we're bigger letters, than default using UC1701.h...

Hi Richard, you can use the U8G library with many different fonts, please see https://github.com/Industruino/libraries#uc1701 for the constructor (pin configuration). The standard examples work. Each font you use in your sketch will take several kB memory, but you can reduce the size by using the suffix 'n' (numerals only) or 'r' (reduced set) for most of the fonts if that fits your application. See U8G docs.

Each of the available libraries has support for different displays.

You can use the u8g library which is graphical and has support for this display.

Due to the size of the library and fonts, this solution works only for 1286 MCUs.
